The Epitome is an entirely student-run publication. Students design layouts, write copy and captions, edit pages and set the editorial policy. Two dedicated advisers help to oversee business operations and dealing directly with the publishing company. Students on the Epitome staff come from all walks of life and all majors. Students represent majors from every field offered at Lehigh; from marketing and journalism to mechanical and electrical engineering. Working on a professional publication offers journalism students another opportunity to apply their skills and gain hands on experience that will benefit them in the future. The Epitome also allows students to work with each other in a team environment, giving them valuable social skills and experience with real life situations, something that no classroom can offer. It is also a great way to make new friends!
